I checked the SRS web site but could not find any picture of an asphalt track. How does it look like? Regarding, Gilbert' Hobbytown, I remember several years people racing oval on the parking lot next to the store. Is it still the same?
Is there actually a large asphalt race track like this one in Phoenix?

we wish!!
unfortunately, we don't have a track that big.
what we got here for onroad is about 100' by 40' size. smaller than most nitro onroad tracks but it's still fun and a way to go out and race our sedans here locally.


i got this pic from google earth. it's not that clear and the layout is now different (the one pictures was a pretty old layout)

Thanks for the information. With respect to the size and climate of Phoenix, I was expecting a little more possibilities for on road. Is there any future project?

jawa - checkout www.competitionhobbies.net

when it comes to indoor RC facilities it's in the top 10. if your coming from PHX it's actually on the topside north of Tuscon in the town Marana and to top it's right off I-10.

i have recently moved from there, but you may want to send a PM to "ericF" for a 12th
